The Harry Potter TagHarry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is now 20 years old. For 80% of my life Harry Potter has been there for me when I was bored, lonely or sad. Harry was there to remind to be brave, Ron was there to remind to be a better, kinder, more supportive friend despite having my own problems and Hermione was there to make me be the best student I could be. I realise it sounds dramatic, but Harry Potter really changed my life, and it continues to do so even now.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary, I really wanted to write a Harry Potter blog, but I knew that if I was left to my own devices, I’d ramble more than I’d ever rambled before so I decided to look online for a Harry Potter tag and I immediately found one by FandomsOnTheRun that I wanted to try. Any excuse to talk about Potter! Continue reading

May Favourites - 2017Gosh, May feels like it went on forever. I’m not complaining – 2016 flew by so I’m hoping every other month follows the slow pace of May!

It felt like summer had arrived early, with the weather being glorious – sometimes it felt as though I was back in Spain! Matt was able to come home for just over a week, and we worked out where and when we can meet up for the next (and last) four months of his tour, which gives me something to look forward to over this break. I didn’t get as much done on here as I’d have liked. Earlier in the month while clearing space, I deleted a database which said it hadn’t been accessed since 2011. It turned out that it was my WordPress database, and it wasn’t able to be restored so I got to start my website with a clean slate! Continue reading

What Works? Drying Out a Mobile Phone

Phones, as necessary as they seem to have become, are a constant bother. For something so advanced, phones are so easy to break – whether it falls out your pocket and smashes, stops working just before your contract is up, or gets water damaged, a mobile isn’t the most reliable piece of tech. That said, most newer models can seem to survive quite a bit of bashing, and I’ve had two phones that have survived significant water damage. Of all the ways to damage a phone, dropping it down the toilets seems to be one of the most common mistakes made, and two weeks ago I made that mistake!

Once again, having not learnt from my mistake 3 years ago, I was messing around with things in my control panel that I don’t understand and promptly deleted a database. This database said it was last updated in 2011, and was WordPress version 2.6-something, so I assumed it was my old website’s database that I’d never got around to removing. Obviously, I was way off the mark and neither myself, or my lovely host could do anything.

So, here’s to a fresh start….again. I’ll be playing around with the site trying to get it all back to the way it was, but though I still have all the pictures from any post I’d written in the last three years, I had never saved the text. I’ll be re-writing a few of my old favourites posts, and I’ll be bashing out some new ones too.

For the next few days, however, I will just be building the site back up and making sure all my CSS is the way I want it. If you stumble across anything that doesn’t seem quite right, please let me know.
